As Arizona fights for its legal and financial life, in excess of 450,000 illegal alien migrants tap into every aspect of its educational, medical, welfare and prison systems. They overrun schools, hospitals and housing. Arizona has become the automobile theft capital of the world with 57,000 cars stolen annually by illegal aliens. Arizona also boasts the highest kidnapping rate in the United States.
Last year, after several deaths at the hands of illegal aliens, Governor Janet Brewer signed S.B. 1070 into law to thwart and deport illegal aliens from Arizona. Immediately, President Barack Obama forced Attorney General Eric Holder into filing suit against the new law.
Governor Brewer took the federal government to court for not doing their job, which forced the passage of S.B. 1070.
Congress Must Act to Reassert Constitutional Authority and Protect the Public Interest
Dan Stein, president of “The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) sharply criticized the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal’s highly politicized ruling which blocks key provisions of Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, SB 1070. The decision essentially strips local law enforcement of any authority to enforce immigration laws except within strict parameters set by Homeland Security.
“Monday’s ruling turns the Constitution on its head, empowering the president to make immigration policy by executive fiat,” stated Dan Stein, president of FAIR. “The decision also leaves state and local governments at the mercy of an administration that, for political reasons, refuses to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.”
“FAIR is urging Congress to reassert authority over immigration policy in order to limit the executive branch’s discretionary policy of widespread non-enforcement. Congress must clarify its intent that state and local governments be full partners in the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.
“The ruling poses a threat to national self-determination and the ability of states to ensure a decent quality of life of their citizens,” charged Stein. “The inability of state and local governments to enforce the laws the executive branch won’t turns the political whims of the president into the de facto law of the land.”
Finally, Stein said, “States must continue to fight to ensure the executive branch is held accountable for its wholesale unwillingness to carry out its responsibilities to enforce immigration laws. States can and must pursue state-based remedies to the Obama administration’s refusal to place the interests of citizens and national security ahead of its political agenda.”
Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country’s largest immigration reform group. With over 250,000 members nationwide, FAIR fights for immigration policies that serve national interests, not special interests. FAIR believes that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and establish a rule of law that is recognized and enforced.
